The MBI crew went out to Poolesville Golf Course to get a look at the course for Friday’s 2-Man Team competition. Mr. MBI (MEL) scored a Hole-In-One on the par 3, 168 yard, third hole. Money winners, Saunders, Clyde and Mel.

And they are off the tee box in search of the triple crown of DC Duffers—two low qualifying rounds and one extra low round to win the RED JACKET. Many have broken from the gate very fast and have to be considered a legitimate threat to win it all.

“MANY ARE CALLED BUT FEW ARE CHOSEN!” according to head oddsmaker Mel Blackwell who has set the early odds below to win it all. He cautions there has only been one Secretariat who has gone wire to wire in all three races.

FAVORITES OUT OF THE GATE

Lance and Kwame Bailey       8-1  Both have had strong showings at MD National And Hampshire Greens But can they do it twice more when the heat is on?

Robert Day                             8-1  Can he go two more low rounds with a target On his back ?

Bill Hall                                   7-1 A strong favorite but already has one jacket will Lightning strike twice? Swami not convinced.

Larry Banks                            9-1  Enjoys a favorable handicap but can a hi Handicapper put together 3 low rounds????

Bill Strudwick                       10-1 Excellent Doctor, does that translate to The course? Take 2 and call me tomorrow!

Steve Hill                                 6-1 Cagy veteran with a consistent game a Dangerous opponent Beware!!

Robert Hood                           9-1 Another hi handicapper whose consistency will Be tested in the forest!

Frank Sanders                        4-1 Very dangerous has played another sport at The highest level so pressure is not a factor!

Richard Johns                        7-1 Long off the tee if the short game is there Could be a second jacket.

Clyde Rowe                             5-1 Plays YEAR-ROUND so is never rusty. Has the Curse of a previous win but he may beat the odds.

Bill Lewis                                8-1 Is in the sweet spot for handicap a blessing And a curse can he hold up to the pressure?

FIRST DAY JITTERS BUT WORTH WATCHING AND WILL MAKE SOME NOISE 

Ron Holsey                               8-1  Consistent and does not rattle also likes A great cigar which is a positive!

Cal LaRoche                             9-1  Red jacket curse but can make some noise A proven winner

Dickie Carter                          10-1  Don’t laugh, if he is on it is OVER! A Big handicap, big hitter and who knows?

Dave Wilmot                           11-1  Long off the tee but can he score Consistently?

Joe Latta                                  10-1 Better than his score indicates could Be in the finals

David Grant                             10-1 Cannot leave the defending champ out! Another guy who can lull you to defeat!

THE REST OF THE DOGS OF THE SUMMER 27-1  (everyone else)

DO NOT DESPAIR AS THE SWAMIE HAS TWO OF YOU IN THE FINALS!!!! The great predictor just does not know who, yet!!!  The crystal ball sees a BIG North wind coming that will blow a couple of contenders out of the race. Oh, and a certain someone has just come off the INJURED RESERVE list and is chomping at the bit to go low!! There is a lot of meat still on that porkchop so grab some cornbread and get to practicing because somebody in this group is gonna emerge!!

The weekly MBI skins game had some new faces, who were trying to see the course before the 1st Round Red Jacket Qualifier on Saturday.  Money winners, Latta, Hosley, Rowe and Wilmot.

MBI Is BACK, “The weekly skins game” kicked-off another great round of golf and fellowship at Northwest Park Golf Course. Money winners were Sanders, Latta, Lightfoot, Blackwell, and L. Bailey.
